For #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek we've teamed up with some of the Peace of Mind project participants to write this open video letter. We're asking ministers and mental health charities to start seriously considering the role of basic income.ADD YOUR NAME
In March 2021 US President Joe Biden passed a $1.9 trillion fiscal stimulus package. This included a third Economic Impact Payment, a mostly unconditional, cash payment of up to $1400. During this event we will ask a panel of experts to explore Economic Impact Payments in the US and what they mean for basic income in the UK.SIGN UP
Three key areas of work you can get involved in
Basic income has the potential to impact all aspects of life in the UK. We're supporting organisations in various sector to explore how basic income affects different social issues.
Is there a Basic Income Conversation you want to start?
Research is crucial to designing the right basic income for the UK. We support an interdisciplinary Research Network to encourage knowledge sharing and collaboration. The Research Network hosts regular, public seminars. Are you a researcher working on basic income?
Whether it's a full national roll out of basic income or pilots to test the idea, we need politicians to show leadership and sign basic income into legislation. For a change of this magnitude, it's going to take cross-party support. That's what we're building, can you help us?
